Activity Games-Saving Money

Posted by admin on April 22, 2009
Games, Saving Money

I bought Giant Dominoes, Lacing Beads, Rope Quoits, Skittles, Giant 4 in a Row and Giant Board Games which include Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, and Draughts and a Parachute.

I bought these on and saved a lot of money (£300) by using this site, compared to the Rompa book.

The lacing beads are good for hand and eye co-ordination. The rope quoits, parachute, snakes and ladders are going down great, all the residents seem to like them.

The 4 in a Row is going down well also but it is more for people in the early stages of dementia.


Amazon has been great and the delivery service is great and all has been packaged well too.

Note from Peter: After speaking to Shelly about this I thought that if anyone was able to save (£300) this amount of money could go along way in enhancing the residents quality of life in so many other ways. So I contacted Amazon and we now have a page with products specifically for the elderly. Click Here to view. If you have any other suggestions of products or other relevant companies please let me know and we will add them.
